Getting here

Saadani Safari Lodge is about 170km north of Dar es Salaam on the coast of East Africa in Tanzania. It has its own airstrip nearby.


It is a 4 hour drive from Dar es Salaam to Saadani via Chalinze. The Lodge has its own four wheel drive and can arrange pick-ups from Dar.


It is just a 20 minute flight from Dar es Salaam and 15 minutes from Zanzibar to the Saadani strip. We now also offer afternoon flights from Arusha.



Via Bagamoyo, just north of Dar es Salaam, it is possible to reach the Wami River from the south, from where Saadani Safari Lodge will meet you by boat to take you to the lodge across the ocean.


From Zanzibar. If time is not an issue then sail the azure water of the Indian Ocean under the power of the sail. Please book in advance and be advised that this will not be possible when the conditions are not amicable for sailing.
